BLACK MEN LOVING is a series of intimate portraits of Black fathers in Toronto, challenging stereotypes of Black men in the media. THE LITTLE BLACK SCHOOL HOUSE unearths the little known story of the women, men, and children who studied and taught at Canada’s racially segregated Black schools. Looking at modern resistance movements, WHOSE STREETS? is told by the activists and leaders who lived and breathed the realities of the Ferguson uprising, following the murder of Michael Brown by police officers.

In BURKINABÈ RISING, Iara Lee showcases the power of non-violent protest and creative resistance through the arts in Burkina Faso. MINERS SHOT DOWN follows a wildcat strike in post-apartheid South Africa, where miners in one of the biggest platinum mines courageously fought police violence. CALL ME KUCHU documents the struggle of veteran activist David Kato against the Ugandan government’s homophobic laws that propose death for HIV-positive gay men, all the while seeking liberation for fellow lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Still from Miners Shot Down
Lonmin employees gather on a hill called Wonderkop at Marikana, outside Rustenburg in the North West Province of South Africa August 15. The miners are calling for the minimum wage to be lifted from its current R4,000 a month to R12,500. The men are mostly Xhosa and Pondo speaking, and the strike was initiated by the drillers.
